Sprinkle fish with lemon juice and pepper. Heat oil and add onions, garlic and parsley. Cook until onions are transparent. Add tomatoes and simmer five minutes. Add wine and cook five minutes longer. Place half the onion and tomatoes mixture in greased baking dish. Add fish and cover with remaining mixture. Arrange lemon slices over top and bake until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, about 15 minutes.

Vermilion snappers can be found in the Atlantic Ocean from Cape Hatteras, NC down to Brazil in South America.  They live near the sea floor feeding on shrimp, crabs, and other fish.
